HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 13/11/2016 at 15:08

Back from lunch with friends. Had a lovely Remembrance service this morning in Church.


The French have lollipop trees all over the place. I think the French chap who cuts my logs thinks my garden is a mess. At the moment, because we went to England for 2 weeks, my garden is a bit of a mess though, I seem to have got behind.

Morning all.


Grey and damp here too, no chinks.


Sounds funny to read that Pat is planting her tomatoes!

Looks damp and grey this morning, 6°, so warmer than a couple of days ago when there was a -3° frost.

I've grown dahlias from seed, they develop tubers which I've grown the following year. Some I even left in the ground over winter and they grew up again.

Sheps, when a thread gets to 1000 posts Nora from the Gardeners' World team asks the person who started it to start a new thread.

What cute birds. I never seem to get close enough to mine for a good photo.

Glad you got back safely Dove, at least I don't think you had to go on the dreaded A11, saw on yesterday's news there'd been another fatal accident. When we've driven up or down to Stansted there always seems to be an accident.


Wretched Alexa cat has dug up one of my troughs of pansies again. What is it about pansies? She does it every year about this time. I've had to put a fence around the sundial bed. We have a dark tortoiseshell stray cat who is eating her food. She eats outside, don't have a catflap. Dark cat runs away very fast when it sees me.

Going to friends for lunch tomorrow.

Strictly is back!

Len often agrees with me too!


I thought Danny looked gorgeous and danced beautifully, but I think I just preferred Louise, she was amazing, acting as well as dancing.


I actually found Ed quite fun, usually the buffoon of the show gets on my nerves but he has really tried and has improved.

I'm off to watch Strictly too. Unfortunately I didn't get supper in the oven early enough so I'll have to record some of it while I dish up.
